I just installed Windows 8.1 and it asked my to insert Print Shop 21 the install disk. I get an "Error Opening HKLM with ALL ACCESS- setting up the registry!" Is there a compatibility issue with 8.1? If so is there a fix?

Windows 8 is not a compatible OS to begin with , if you ran it on Windows 8 , you did so at your own risk.
This program is not compatible with Windows 8 nor will a fix be made available for this issue.
If it was working previously in Windows 8 before you upgrade to Windows 8.1 its because it tried to migrate the registry settings and Windows 8.1 is setup differently.
You can try removing the program from the control panel and then reinstalling it from your disk, but if you can't get it to work , my only option is to suggest to you, to purchase a compatible version of the program where Windows 8 is listed.
Print Shop 21 works quite well for me on Windows 8.1.
The only thing that error is telling you is that the PDF driver which is installed with Print Shop 21 is not compatible with your Operating System. So, if you have no need to create a PDF file with Print Shop 21, you don't need a fix.
